Uploading or saving files with a .mp4 extension is not allowed

Hi, We get the error "Uploading or saving files with .mp4 extension is not allowed. Contact your administrator if you have any quetions" when using  "Upload" in Power BI Report Server(January 2019)

We were able to upload mp4 in previous versions.

Is there a whitelist of allowed extensions in Power BI Server?

Re: Uploading or saving files with a .mp4 extension is not allowed

Administrators can set the following properties in SSMS Advanced Properties for the server farm:

AllowedResourceExtensionsForUpload Set extensions of resources that can be uploaded to the report server. Extensions for built-in file types like *.rdl and *.pbix are not required to be included. Default is “*, *.xml, *.xsd, *.xsl, *.png, *.gif, *.jpg, *.tif, *.jpeg, *.tiff, *.bmp, *.pdf, *.svg, *.rtf, *.txt, *.doc, *.docx, *.pps, *.ppt, *.pptx”.

Thank you.

I have added .mp4 to AllowedResourceExtensionsForUpload in the ConfigurationInfo table and it fixed the problem.
